Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader to miss 3 weeks

The Detroit Red Wings will be without forward Justin Abdelkader for at least the next three weeks with a mid-body injury.

Abdelkader was injured during Sunday night’s victory over the Vegas Golden Knights after blocking a shot. The Red Wings recalled forward Givani Smith from the Grand Rapids Griffins to replace him.

In 16 games this season, Abdelkader has no goals and three assists.
